The food here is very good, although I tend to choose a Sunday Roast as I think it is very good value where as some other dishes seem a bit pricy for what they are

I have no answer to help you on this. All I can say is that my family had a very enjoyable lunch and made to feel very comfortable. If you're in any way not at ease with anything then I suggest you avoid the place.
